Here’s more about that outfit I wore to Frocktails, the Portland, Oregon, event that brings together sewists to show off their skills and exchange Instagram handles. I will share with you a few things I learned making this jacket.
McCall’s 6901 is the Palmer/Pletsch pant pattern that we use in teaching Palmer/Pletsch Pant Fit and Sewing workshops. It has narrow legs. I’ve made it as a dressier trouser using a washable rayon, polyester, and spandex fabric called Downtown, from Telio. It molds and drapes beautifully.
I had so much fun sewing this jacket, McCall’s Palmer/Pletsch M7818. It had been a long time since I’d made a blazer jacket and I’ve missed sewing one. This classic style is back in fashion now. For the newest look, wear it with a tee.
